The Department of Experimental and Health Sciences at UPF
The Department of Experimental and Health Sciences of Universitat Pompeu Fabra (DCEXS-UPF, https://www.upf.edu/web/biomed) is an internationally renowned biomedical research center in Barcelona, Spain. The DCEXS is located at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park (PRBB, https://www.prbb.org/) with six other research institutes, including the newly created Outstation of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). With a staff of more than 300 scientists, the DCEXS combines the creation and transfer of knowledge through the seamless integration of research and teaching, well in line with the vision and values of Universitat Pompeu Fabra (https://www.upf.edu/), which holds top-level positions in state and international rankings for teaching quality and scientific productivity. The DCEXS trajectory of research excellence and innovation in education has been recognized with the “Maria de Maeztu” Unit of Excellence award by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness.
Research at the DCEXS
Understanding complex biological systems, particularly human biology and disease, requires interdisciplinary approaches integrating experimental biology, computation and engineering. The scientific focus of the DCEXS for the next five years is to strengthen and expand our research horizons under the broad overall scope of molecular biomedicine covered by our Research Programs. The DCEXS is organized in seven Research Programs (https://www.upf.edu/web/biomed/programmes) and is supported by cutting edge core facilities in flow cytometry, proteomics, genomics, microscopy, and scientific IT (https://www.upf.edu/web/sct).
The DCEXS promotes diversity in an inclusive environment that welcomes applicants regardless of age, disability, gender, nationality, race, religion or sexual orientation.
